whoa, really? i thought the newsday was easier than that. you still beat me, but only by a few seconds.

what'd you think of the LAT?

Dan said...

Not my favorite of yours, I guess... mostly for the short fill, which, looking at it again, I've seen much worse. But the cluing is way above average.

As for "Lester Ruff" maybe I was thinking in hard-Newsday mode?

Joon said...

spot-on. when i looked at it myself, i inwardly cringed at how many ugly short answers there were. glad you liked the cluing, though.

Yeah, "Lester Ruff" is one of Stan's pseudonyms...the puzzles are "Less Rough" apparently. OK, maybe I'm the last person to figure that one out. :)
